Hi I'm Ammon

Raised in Provo. Improved in Ohio. I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

About Me

I'm a college graduate who enjoys the outdoors, reading, sleeping, eating, making, breaking, and gaming. Currently I'm on a mission in the Ohio Columbus Mission, which is awesome.

Why I am a Mormon

I found the truth.

How I live my faith

I follow Jesus Christ the best I can. Keeping the Sabbath day holy, daily scripture study & prayer, and being grateful for God's creations are the biggest things for me.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Ammon
No. We don't worship Joseph Smith. We hold him in high regard and respect him a lot. We view him like Moses. Moses did many great things for the ancient Israelites, but they didn't worship Moses. The ancient Israelites worshiped God our Heavenly Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. We also worship God our Heavenly Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. So yea, we don't worship Joseph Smith, we just greatly respect him. Show more Show less

What is the purpose of the welfare services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Ammon
It's to help someone help themselves and improve his life, or her life. There's a saying that says "Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he'll eat for the rest of his life." Same basic idea. Show more Show less

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Ammon
Who founded The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? Depends on how you define "founded". I'll explain who "founded", "restored", and "organized" the Church. We believe that Jesus Christ founded, and organized, His church in New Testament times. We also believe that His church was corrupted after the death of his apostles. Since it was corrupted His church needed restoring so it'd be like how He founded it. We believe that His church was restored and reorganized by the Prophet Joseph Smith. It was then called "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints". So Jesus Christ founded & organized His Church, it was corrupted, and Joseph Smith reorganized it. Show more Show less
